The publication pointed out that it will be the first process of this nature in history of Mexico, which required a constitutional reform and is part of the 100 commitments made by President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador at his swearing-in ceremony on December 2018.
The process will be remembered because the National Electoral Institute did everything possible to sabotage it, the councilors did not want to sacrifice luxuries to install more ballot boxes, nor did they give it as much publicity as the personal publicity that their boss Lorenzo Cordova gives himself using public resources, the newspaper added.
La Jornada noted that the opposition failed to put together a banner beyond the fact that the recall is being promoted by the president to increase his power, when the idea is that it would be promoted by the people in case they want to overthrow him.
Curiously, the newspaper stated that this argument is a contradiction: they say that the Government is a disaster, why don’t they take advantage of this opportunity to send Andres Manuel to his villa in Palenque?
In the only reliable, serious and neutral poll known, published last Friday, 62 percent of 2,200 participants answered that they will vote, 23 percent answered no, 13 percent are not interested and 2.0 percent are undecided.
In order to make the result of the revocation binding, it will have to count on the participation of 40 percent of Mexicans who are registered in the voter’s nominal list (92 million 823 citizens), equivalent to 37 million votes.
